The Allman's Beacon Run Continues with Johnny Winter and Los Lobos

The Allman Brothers Band’s Beacon residency continued last night with another round of special guests. After running through such classics as “Ain't Wastin' Time No More,” “Hot 'Lanta,” Van Morrison’s “And It Stoned Me” and “Revival,” Johnny Winter took the stage for Jimi Hendrix’s “Red House,” John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers’ “You Don't Love Me” and Bob Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited.” Winter has shared the stage with the Allman Brothers Band numerous times since his days at the Fillmore West and actually recorded a version of “Wasted Words” with Gregg Allman, Berry Oakley and Buddy Miles. “While there was never any rivalry or competition, Duane and I appreciated each other’s talents,” Winter reflects in the April/May issue of Relix.

The top of set two began with the Eat a Peach classic “Les Brers In A Minor” and also included “Come & Go Blues” and “Melissa.” Los Lobos guitarists David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas then emerged for a take on the Allman Brothers Band’s “Don't Keep Me Wonderin'” and the blues classic “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.” The Allmans proper then brought the set to a close with “Wasted Words” and “No One To Run With.” Both Hidalgo and Rosas then returned for an encore segment that teased “Walk Don't Run” before moving into “One Way Out.” Please click here for daily setlists from the Beacon.

Levon Helm and Taj Mahal Help the Allmans Open Beacon Run

The Allman Brothers Band kicked off its annual run at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night with a marathon two-set show that drew in rock-era luminaries Levon Helm and Taj Mahal. Though the Allman Brothers Band’s Beacon residency is known for its special guests, this year’s festivities has been described as "a tribute to Duane Allman" and is expected to feature many of the musicians the slide guitarist played with before his death.

As a tribute, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks opened the run with “Little Martha,” a rarely played number from Eat a Peach that is credited as a Duane Allman solo composition. The band then changed it’s a stacked first set that included “Don't You No More,” “It's Not My Cross To Bear,” “I Walk On Guilded Splinter’s,” a new instrumental, and “Midnight Rider,” among others. Taj Mahal emerged near the end of the set for “Leaving Trunk,” “44 Blues” and “Statesboro Blues.” As legend has it, Allman was first inspired to learn the slide after hearing Taj Mahal band guitarist Jesse Ed Davis perform “Statesboro Blues” in 1968. It should be noted that last night the band played the Mahal’s original version of the latter song, not the Allman Brothers Band’s trademark arrangement.

The group’s second set began with a bang, as Levon Helm and his associates Theresa Williams, Larry Campbell and Brian Mitchell took the stage for The Band classics “Ophelia” and “I Shall Be Released.” Mahal then joined in for “The Weight,” sharing vocals with Helm, Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes. Duane Allman performed on Aretha Franklin’s famed cover of The Band tune. The evening later came to a close with “Black Hearted Woman” “Stormy Monday,” “Mountain Jam” and an encore of “Southbound.”

The Allman Brothers Band will celebrate its 40th anniversary throughout 2009 and the 20th anniversary of its first appearance at the Beacon throughout March. The group is also featured on the cover of the April/May issue of Relix.

I would imagine, unless his tour schedule prohibits it, that Mr. Clapton will show up to run through some Derek & Dominoes material with Derek (who "stole" the spotlight in Clapton's band when they toured together).

Eric Clapton Joins the Allman Brothers for "Layla" and Other Assorted Love Songs

Eric Clapton joined the Allman Brothers Band for an extended portion of its second set last night, marking his first appearance with the blues-rock legends after four decades of collaborations with its members. His long rumored appearance has been the source of considerable fan speculation since the group announced that its annual Beacon residency would double as an extended tribute to founding guitarist Duane Allman. In the early 1970s, Duane Allman appeared on Clapton’s classic Derek & the Dominos album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs and later clocked in two shows with the famed band. Oddly enough, though Dickey Betts sat in with Slowhand on at least one occasion in the 1970s and Derek Trucks toured with the guitarist in 2006 and 2007, Clapton has never performed with the Allman Brothers Band. The three-week run has already seen guest spots from Duane Allman associates John Hammond, Bonnie Bramlett, Johnny Winter and the members of Cowboy.

For the third time this month, the Allman Brothers opened its set with the ditty “Little Martha,” a rarely played track from Eat a Peach credited to Duane Allman. The band then launched into a ferocious first set that featured incredibly high energy versions of “Statesboro Blues,” “Done Somebody Wrong,” “Revival,” “Woman Across the River” and “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’.” The Allman Brothers Band’s only guest-free set then came to a close with a playful version of the chestnut “Whipping Post.”

As a rare treat, Gregg Allman opened his second set with a solo piano take on his “Oncoming Traffic.” The keyboardist recorded a live version of the song with his solo band in the 1970s and revived the number at the Beacon in 2005 and again earlier this week as a duet with Bramlett. The rest of the Brothers then emerged for “Come and Go Blues” and “Good Morning Little School Girl,” the latter of which featured Gov’t Mule keyboardist Danny Louis on piano. While a considerable number of fans rushed the floor, Allman introduced Eric Clapton as “a real great player and a real wonderful person” and the guitarist took the stage for the Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs number “Key to Highway.” Clapton proceeded to trade solos with Trucks and Warren Haynes on the Allman Brothers Band jam “Dreams” and another Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs classic, “Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad.” The latter song has been a staple in the Allman Brothers Band’s repertoire for years. In certain ways, the group’s second set climaxed with a mammoth cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing” that featured a three-way guitar duel between Clapton, Haynes and Trucks. The song, which is also appears on Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, was a frequent highlight on Clapton’s world tour with Trucks.

Susan Tedeschi then took the stage with the expanded ensemble for yet another Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs number frequently covered by the Allman Brothers Band, “Anyday.” Unbeknownst to most, Clapton actually plays slide on the recorded version of the cut, while Allman is credited as the song’s rhythm guitarist. The band then left the stage for a quick encore break, but returned with both Clapton and Louis for a version of anthem “Layla” that left the entire audience off its feet. In total, the Allman Brothers Band ran through six of Duane Allman’s eleven contributions to Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.

The Allman Brothers Band will return to the Beacon tonight, with Clapton rumored to be on hand once again.
